The People’s Convoy Circles D.C.
As the truckers continue to circle D.C., local authorities have moved to shut them down. Nevertheless, it is clear that the People’s Convoy is determined to make its voice heard at any cost.
Heavy traffic was reported on Interstate 495 and others in the National Capital Region throughout the day. The convoy made its way from Hagerstown, Maryland, where it had gathered for more than a week. The convoy made its way into Washington on the 14th Street Bridge on I-395, drove to I-695, and then crossed the Anacostia River in a return to the Beltway, the Washington Post reported.
In an attempt to control the situation, the Metropolitan Police Department closed multiple “streets and highway exits,” according to a statement from the city government. “These rolling road closures are occurring in real-time as they are needed, and will be lifted as soon as they are no longer necessary,” the statement concludes….
After arriving in the area March 6 and circling the Beltway, one of the organizers, Brian Brase, said the group was “not going anywhere” until their message was heard.
Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican, met with the convoy organizers at the Hagerstown Speedway last week and rode shotgun in one of the trucks.
